D-Day - The Normandy Landings in the Words of Those Who Took Part
Lewis, Jon E. (editor)

It was the greatest amphibious operation of all time. Codenamed 'Overlord', the planning of Normandy landings on 6 June 1944 had taken more than two years and on D-Day involved over 5,000 craft delivering 156,000 men onto French soil heavily defended by German troops. The scale of the undertaking and the ferocity of the fighting were overwhelming for the men who took part, yet the initial assault was only beginning. Over the next ten weeks, troops and equipment flooded into France with bitter battle fought amongst the hedgerows and in the towns and villages to secure the Allied foothold in Northern Europe. This collection of rare, first-hand accounts tells the story of D-Day and the subsequent battles in the words of soldiers and civilians on both sides of the war as well as in front-line reports by war correspondents such as Ernest Hemingway.
